Why we recommend American Van Lines

Flat rate pricing

American Van Lines’s moving rates are determined by a flat rate pricing system based on the weight of your belongings.

American Van Lines uses binding estimates, and as long as you don’t add anything to your shipment after your inventory has been submitted, your price will not change.

That way, you have peace of mind because you know the up front costs.

Specialists in moving high-value items

American Van Lines hires only certified professionals to handle unique items such as furniture, art, antiques, and pianos during your long-distance move.

They even have piano moving specialists trained to disassemble different grand, vertical, electrical, and digital pianos.

All employees undergo thorough background checks and yearly training to ensure top-quality service.

Great customer service

We recommend American Van Lines because they have great customer service. From your initial inquiry to the final delivery of your belongings, AVL will support you at every step.

AVL’s customer service is so good that Newsweek ranked their organization as one of America’s best customer service companies from 2019-2022.

Flexible moving options

AVL offers flexible moving options to suit any budget. They have two options:

➡️ Full-service moves

➡️ Partial service moves

Full-service moves

American Van Lines are full-service movers that provide comprehensive services for international, local, or long-distance moves.

The company's background-checked team will manage every aspect of your move from beginning to end, including disassembling furniture, packing belongings, and loading the truck, as well as transporting, unloading, unpacking, and reassembling furniture at the final destination.

Partial-service moves

For a cost-effective moving option, AVL offers a partial-pack moving package. AVL will handle packing delicate and fragile items, such as electronics and glass table tops, giving you peace of mind that they will be safely transported.
